Day 10

The God Who Brings Justice

from the Prayers in Scripture reading plan

Jeremiah 20:1-18, Romans 12:17-21, Hebrews 12:1-2

BY She Reads Truth

reading plan focuses on the prayers offered to God in the narratives of Scripture. Each day we’ll read a narrative that includes a prayer from an individual or group. Their prayers vary in length, type, posture, purpose, and God’s response. The secondary passages explore how the rest of Scripture speaks to the themes demonstrated in the main reading. 

While each account is different, every prayer recorded in Scripture teaches us about the unchanging God who invites us to speak to and hear from Him. These prayers model for us what it can look like to be in conversation with God. As you read, notice the posture and emotions present each day. 

Reading Scripture together is the centerpiece of what we do at She Reads Truth. As we spend time as a community reading Prayers in Scripture together, we encourage you to start by reading the daily Scripture on your own. Then join us here to engage and encourage one another as we respond to what we’ve read in the comments. 

In light of today’s Scripture reading, how can you live out the truth that we serve a God who brings justice?

    So thankful for your grace Abba father. Thanks for taking care of me.

  2. Dori Brown says:

    I’m thankful that God is the one that gets the justice. I need to trust in him and give that back to him always. How freeing this truth is when I love it out!

    From David Guzik commentary

    b. Why did I come forth from the womb to see labor and sorrow: There was a purpose of God in setting this section of grief immediately after the section of faith and triumph — to show that trusting God did not make it all easy or triumphant for Jeremiah. The battle remained and reliance upon God had to be constant.

    ii. “These verses do belong together. They may not belong together by logic, but who says the life of the soul is always logical? Jeremiah’s curses follow his praises because that is the way it was during his dark night of the soul.” (Ryken)


    God allowed this in His word to show reality of our hearts living in a fallen workd full of confiding, pain, hardship and grief.

  5. Ris Vogel says:

    I am responsible to obey what the Lord calls me to do, but I am not responsible for the outcome. He will take care of it all amen.

  6. Allie Curole says:

    We live in a world that is constantly working against you. Satan uses every opportunity to twist your beliefs. God is proven to be a compassionate and intentional father who cares deeply for children. He uses the trials that’s are thrown at us to further prepare us for what is to come and make us stronger.

  7. Mabel Aigbonohan says:

    I read in ‘the enduring Word’ commentary app that even with Jeremiah being in the will of The Lord and being a faithful messenger. He still experienced depression and pain, which I isn’t a sin .
    But he couldn’t stop preaching the Prophetic Word from God.

    God takes revenge, we just wait patiently and not be bitter.
